Richard and his band of misfits are low level criminal that knocked over Congressman Kellisí safe.

The story takes an interesting turn when Richard and his crew are surprised to learn about the missing box. The chatter about the mysterious box triggers Richardís curiosity. He turns his attention to the person who told him about the safe job; Haima, his former lover. While trying to locate and recover the box, Chet Blackburn, a man in Richardís circle. He is a raging psychopath and pathological rapist with major woman issues. He gave Haima a dirty, inelegant beating which left her with a crippling case of amnesia. As Haima struggles to regain her memory and identity, she has a new and dangerous life thrust upon her in this Action thriller.
Haima Kellis, 30, white female, is the protagonist of the film. She is the former lover of the antagonist, is Richard. She is alluring and forceful. Her strength comes from her being the only child and has experience more hardship in her short life than most people do in a lifetime. Haima is perhaps the one person alive who has the resolve to withstand anything life throws her way. With the right mental and physical health she could rule the world. The problem is she has severe amnesia, thus making her her own worst enemy.
Richard Leath, mid 30′s, white male. Richard knows too well how to hold a grudge and can be very vindictive. He's a control freak who saw the opportunity to be revengeful. He is the antagonist of the film.
Congressman Steven Kellis, 59, white, male, a powerful former congressman with a dark secret. A secrete he must protect at all cost.
Henry Brennan, a.k.a. Hank, 55, white male, was a seasoned detective and close friend of Congressman Kellis'. He's now a fragment of his former self, an alcoholic who has adopted a redneck-like life-style. He lives in a mobile home and is dragged out of retirement to protect the congressman's dark secret.
Chet Blackburn, 30s, white, male, very pale, thin, with a "don't care" attitude. Chet's a raging psychopath, pathological rapist and woman abuser. He shares a huge secret with his co-offenders; he has killed before. He gives little regard for anyone who stands in his way. He likes his liquor, likes to party and get violent when he drinks.
Thomas Bradley, early-to-mid 30s, black male, college football linebacker that didn't get drafted into the NFL. He's in love the idea of being part of a team which makes him a willing, but vulnerable accomplice. He is loyal to Richard's and the others in the group. He's a follower and, if it weren't for the attack on Haima, he'd be a follower his whole life. He struggle with guilt of recent events.

Little Boy, 4, white. This boy needs to look adorable to the audience. This character speaks no lines, and this is a role that is considered a featured extra role, but I am looking to cast this role.
